Pasta Salad with Corn, Green Beans, Tomatoes
This pasta salad has a delicious, bright flavor. It's perfect for summer cookouts."I couldn't find orzo so I used elbow pasta - was fine but would have been better with orzo. Since I am growing basil, I used that instead of tarragon; worked just as well. I wanted it as an entree so I added grilled chicken chunks Overall a very nice summer salad. " - d555
